The future of personalized genomics
Manja Meggendorfer is the Head of Molecular Genetics at Munich Leukemia Laboratory (MLL), where she oversees various R&D activities such as the 5,000 genome project, which is aimed at better understanding the genetic factors behind leukemia. She received her Master of Science in Biology from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich and her PhD. in collaboration with the Helmholtz Center Munich working on gene regulation within the architecture of the cell nucleus. After her post-doctorate, she moved to the field of hematology as a scientist in the department of molecular genetics at MLL. In combination with her MBA in Health Care Management, Manja hopes to improve the diagnostic and prognostic work associated with routine diagnostic approaches for leukemia or lymphoma patients.
Revolutionizing how DNA sequencing impacts the world
Element Biosciences is a multi-disciplinary startup company focused on innovating genetic analysis tools. The AVITI System is Element’s first product, a revolutionary DNA sequencing platform that performs at the highest industry standards in both data quality and cost savings in a benchtop system. Element’s proprietary approach to improving signal-to-noise ratio through groundbreaking innovations in surface chemistry, instrumentation, and biochemistry have drastically decreased the run cost and capital cost for DNA sequencing while simultaneously delivering state-of-the-art sequencing data quality.
IDT has partnered with Element Biosciences to provide NGS reagents that have been validated to work on their versatile platform. Featured below are some of the key assets we have developed to help get you started!
